“I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.” (Psalm 7:17 NKJV)
We all have those days when we’re not sure about how things are in our relationship with God. On the on hand, we want Him to protect us, on the other, we get disgusted with who we are and what we’ve done. Then we wonder if we deserve the troubles we get. In the whirlwind of emotions as we deal with God, we go back to calling on Him to watch over us. Worship should comfort and convict us. It should call us to a deeper relationship with God. David experienced all these emotions as he worshiped God and ended with this declaration of faith. Sundays are days of worship for most Christians. The end result of our worship must be that we praise God and recognize that He alone is Lord over all.
How was your worship? Did you gather together with God’s people and gain encouragement? Were you convicted by God’s word? Did you praise God throughout the worship time? Did you miss corporate worship? If worship is meant to draw us closer to God, did you experience true worship wherever you were today? How can you experience a greater sense of God’s presence when you worship?
Lord, as I look back on my time of worship, I do praise You. You alone are righteous, and I appreciate the freedom I have to worship with other brothers and sisters in Christ. Continue to convict me when I’m wrong and draw me back into Your ways. Protect and guide me as I seek to show Your love and grace to others.
